Rudy was campaigning in 1993 with the show Seinfeld where he appeared as the NYC Mayor candidate as the "over count" cholesterol man by eating too much yogurt. This "product placement" of Mayor Giuliani is often referred to as an excellent example of electioneering and boosted his popularity accordingly.

On January 12, 2017, President-elect Donald Trump named Giuliani his Cyber Security Adviser.[2] Giuliani was also an important person in the Trump–Ukraine scandal, where he was accused of being one of the people who asked the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden.
